He is said to be considering a Chinese drama series, The Three Women and A Man (tentative title) that will start filming at the end of this month in Shenzhen, China. The drama will be directed by Lin He Long, who was also the director for Show’s previous dramas, Corner With Love, Hot Shot and Hi My Sweetheart, so if he does take on this offer, it will be his fourth collaboration with director Lin He Long. Show’s manager has confirmed that both Show and Lin He Long are discussing it, but the casting has not been confirmed. It order for Show to join the production of this drama, he will have to sacrifice the offer to be a judge for two reality singing competitions, which would earn him an estimate of 14 million RMB. The drama will be based off the novel and will explore various sexual topics. Many have been worried that if he does take up the role, he will have to be featured in several erotic scenes and are worried that it'll damage his image. It has been confirmed though, that if he does take on the role, they will remove erotic scenes due to broadcasting constraints.


John Woo Discusses Upcoming Epic 'The Crossing'

The director says his next feature, dubbed the "Chinese Titanic" and starring Zhang Ziyi, "celebrates the power of love" during a difficult period in Chinese history.

Hong Kong director John Woo shared a little about his much anticipated Chinese-language feature, The Crossing, at a press conference in Taipei organized by Beijing Galloping Horse, the Chinese studio behind the feature.

Woo described the period film as "an anthem of love." Set during the revolutionary period of 1949, The Crossing tells the story of three doomed couples from Mainland China who board Taiping, an ill-fated ship bound for Taiwan. The movie has a $40-million budget and has already been dubbed the "Chinese Titanic." It stars Zhang Ziyi, Huang Xiaoming, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Masami Nagasawa, and Song Hye-kyo.

"I have always wanted to make an epic, as well as a romantic drama about China and Taiwan," Woo said.

"There are many touching stories involving [the ship] Taiping, which was brought to my attention by Wang Hui-Ling [the screenwriter of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon], during the shooting of Red Cliff (2008)," he added. "She gave me the idea of the film, and I was fascinated ever since the very first draft. This is a film that celebrates the power of love in the age of turbulence."
